Homemade Potato Chips

You need:
3 Potatoes
Olive oil
Pepper (optional)

How to make it:

  • Clean and slice the potatoes
  • Soak in water for 30 minutes (this helps remove excess starch)
  • Preheat oven to 180-200C, place a baking sheet** in a baking tray, coat the baking sheet with some olive oil (do this while the potatoes are soaking)
  • Spread the potato slices on the tray, drizzle more olive oil over them and add the seasoning
  • Bake for 10 minutes
  • Take them out, flip them over
  • Bake for a further 5 minutes. Keep an eye on the chips as they bake through if they start to brown too much remove from the oven.

**Since this is a zero-waste recipe I would encourage you to use a compostable baking sheet. Or try to not use one at all.
